, I hope you're having a fine week,

The phrase has been said in a variety of ways but research indicates that the first recorded version was written by Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. in the mid 19th century. ((August 29, 1809 - October 7, 1894)

"The exact quote is, "The right to swing my fist ends where the other man's nose begins." "

The best to you always, Carol P.
